For many urban children, their view of the world is the neighborhood in which they live. We aspire to provide each of our students with safe surroundings, enlightening experiences, and the incentive to reach for the stars!
It is our vision to continue to expand the Academy to accommodate additional children. Currently, admittance requests surpass availability and admission is determined by random lottery drawing.
The cost of educating a child at Joshua Academy exceeds State and Federal funds. We receive only 70% of our funding from the State of Indiana. All transportation costs – including bus maintenance – capital improvements, construction, and other expenses are the responsibility of the Academy.
Financial sustainability for a charter school is not possible without individual and corporate participation. Joshua Academy succeeds because of the love and sacrifice of a phenomenal group of parents, students, teachers, administrators, benefactors, and friends. There is nothing more emotionally charged than discussing the well being and future of our children. The challenge is significant, will continue to increase in the future, and will require all of us to work creatively toward resolution.
